Apple has quite a mess on its hands. The tech giant is recalling hundreds of thousands of Beats Pill XL speakers because overheating batteries could cause them to catch on fire. If you own one of these gadgets, you need to turn it off and return it to Apple as quickly as possible.
The iPhone maker will recall about 222,000 speakers in the United States and about 11,000 in Canada, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said on Wednesday.
So far, users have reported eight instances of overheating speakers to Apple. That prompted the company to issue a recall and offer customers their money back.
If you own Beats Pill XL speakers, you can return them to Apple for a refund. Apple is offering customers $325 that they can redeem as Apple store credit or an electronic payment.
To return your speakers to Apple, head over to the company's Beats Pill XL speaker website to fill out a request form. Apple will then send you a box with postage that you can use to send in your speakers.
You can expect to receive your refund within three weeks after Apple receives the package.
